I know what I wanted from the season finale of Skins. I wanted to see the characters deal with Chris's death and for us to farewell the current characters and maybe have a sneak peak into what the furture holds for Season 3 of Skins. But I'm left a little disappointed. In a stupid prank Sid & Tony steal Chris's coffin and have a car chase around town. This was sticking to the 'in your face' comedy styling that Skins is know for. But I have to say that I found it a little distasteful.

Everyone who has graduated High School understands that its the end of an era. Leaving High School is a big deal, your whole world changes. Friends you've know for years part ways and things really are never the same. The episode hang true to that fact.

My complaint about this episode is that things are simply left up in the air, Sid & Cassie's relationship is left unresolved. We don't get to see Tony & Michelle say goodbye. What is Jal doing? It's true that things change once High School is over but it would have made sense to have a final shindig or farewell party before everyone parts ways.

I did enjoy the final scene giving us a chance to farewell the current cast. It would also appear that Effy maybe taking centre stage next season. Although, nothing is confirmed, so maybe they will follow up on Sid & Cassie next season? If we learn anything about next season we will let you know.

But I'm left disappointed overall with the episode, we as viewers need closer. But I'm left with hope that maybe next season we'll see what came of Sid & Cassie. Farewell to the current cast of Skins it's been a journey!
